He does not have a vehicle.

He was last seen wearing a Home Depot hat, a gray sweatshirt and blue pajama pants.  He can be highly confused and agitated at times due to his medical condition.

He appears to be suffering from a sort of mild dementia and may not know who he is or where he lives.  He has no identification with him and no money.

He was last seen in the area of Sweet Street NE and Forrest Avenue NE so the area around Plainfield Avenue between Knapp and Leonard is of particular interest.
